Our Heritage

The Rotary Club of Mitchell Field was founded July 16, 1958. We are proud members of Rotary International, the world's oldest service club boasting 1.3 members in 33,000 clubs around the world. Since its founding, the Club has attracted the top business and professional people from our leading industries, commercial businesses, service organizations, and professions in our service area. That area includes South Milwaukee, Franklin, Cudahy, St. Francis and Oak Creek.

We are a vigorous and exceptionally active club. Each year we host a Senior Prom for Senior Citizens, pack and deliver Thanksgiving baskets for our less fortunate neighbors, host a holiday party for Goodwill workers with disabilities, and ring bells for the Salvation Army.  We provide monetary grants for worthy community service organizations and scholarships for college-bound seniors in our service area. We raise funds for the Rotary Foundation, the organization that supports international efforts like Rotary's End Polio Now, the only privately organized and executed international disease eradication project in the history of mankind! If you'd like to see just how successful we've been, click here!  In the past 25 years Rotary has raised a billion dollars and immunized a billion children.

Our meetings are held at noon on Wednesday at the Mitchell International Airport in the Milwaukee Room located on Concourse E. Weekly programs consist of a wide-ranging selection of topics of interest to our members. Guests are welcome at our meetings. Our newsletter, The Jet Stream News covers the weekly meetings and includes articles of interest from Rotary International.

Once each year, District 6270 invites all of the clubs in the district to attend a weekend conference at one of our nearby resorts. Excellent programs are planned and these conferences are a perfect medium for renewing old -- and gaining new -- friendships and joining in the social hours that are so much a part of these gatherings. Members and spouses are cordially invited to attend. It is always a memorable weekend.
We live by the Rotary Four-Way Test which states:
Of the things we think, say and do:
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
